said that's inconsistent with our priv is see laws. and they feel that starting with george w. bush and continuing under obama, the united states has simply got the balance wrong. too much invasion of privacy in the pursuit of security. >> when ask youed about whether they handle their information differently, i would say that no country in the world that i know of and certainly not even the european countries has the kind of really intrusive oversight that we have here. and i support that. nor does anyone have the sort of guarantees and protections against invasion of privacy that we have here. i mean many of these countries and there are exceptions among them aren't nearly as faithful to those ideas as we are. >> ifill: is isn't the only reason we are talking about this now is there seems to have been an invisible line, well, not just that it's been reported, but that we're talking about world leaders. dianne feinstein came out this afternoon and said this is something we should not be doing, which is spying or listening in on what world leaders and prime ministers are doing. is t
republicans are going to do right now to this president what democrat did to george w. bush about the same point. not only raise the credibility question but competence question. >> i want to talk more about that in our next block. but just on obama care, i guess one benefit for the administration it certainly knocked off the front page all the messups with the web site. this is not really the way you want to go about it. >> that's not a good thing. i think it's a problem to conflate all these things together. these are really separate issues. but if the boss is going out and over and over saying something that somebody in administration knows not to be true, that's a very different animal. and i think at that point, absolutely someone has to step forward and say, hey, you know, you keep saying this one thing. [ overlapping speakers ] >> one at a time. >> his staff is keeping him in a bubble of ignorant bliss? >> i don't believe it. >> or they're claiming to be keeping him in a bubble of ignorant bliss. neither of the two are good. >> andrew you're saying? >> i would just love politics tha
. everybody has forgotten, by the way, that when president george w. bush, a republican, put that medicare part d drug program in, it was more unpopular than the health care law and they had terrible problems with the computers. >> congresswoman, it was eight years ago that the federal government rolled out medicare part d, a prescription drug benefit, and it was the first time that medicare was launching into this exclusive private health insurance plan. only 21% of americans at that time had a favorable understanding of what medicare part d was and now people would think they couldn't live without it. without proper enhancements as we live and learn. so do you think as we stand right now with the fact that the president was re-elected on obama care and it passed both houses and also vetted through the supreme court, do you believe that all americans deserve access to affordable health care? >> absolutely every american should have access to affordable health care. every american should be able to provide that for their families. but you know when we're comparing medicare part d to this m
suggests that george w. bush tapped the phones of world leaders? >> when did this start? >> four or five years ago. >> 2002. >> 2002. >> the tapping of foreign leaders. >> yes. so you have to apply the same questions to president bush, first of all, whether they do or do not know. i think barnacle brought up the biggest point and that is the nsa overreaching in its power, is this something people want done but they don't want to hear about it. you got to look at that part of it too because we can apply this to a couple of different issues that we complained about or argued about on our set about the conduct of the bush administration. but i would say that most importantly, the important disconnect that i think is happening in this story is that people are thinking that like someone is sitting there listening to her conversations. the phone calls are being monitored. that's different than tapping the phone. >> this is gene. i did write about it this morning. >> i was reading that. >> that the nsa is out of control. >> yes. >> some of us do think the nsa is out of control and some of us th
on the show. >> george w. bush, we were talking about the yesterday, did george w. bush cap -- >> did the bush administration do this type of a baum dream. >>. >> of course, we did. again, i will not get into any specifics here. but this is normal behavior between nation states. this is an "r" rated movie. this is how adult nations treat each other. it's fully accepted. let me give you a concrete example. remember president obama was kind of wetted to his blackberry when he was coming into office. folks like me were saying, this is a big deal, we thought we worked out a compromise, nsa threw a couple defensive tools into the blackberry. now he uses his blackberry. let me give you the backdrop to that story, joe, mika. the most powerful man on earth, the most powerful man in the most powerful nation on earth was just told that his communications were susceptible to intercept by dozens of foreign embassies inside his own national capitol. we didn't render garments. we didn't protest. we realized. that's the way things are. >> you aren't shocked by angela merkel's phone being monitored? >> no. >>
much better. everybody hates george w. bush. this is all we need for a brand new world. little did we know while he was giving that speech in berlin his people were bugging every office. think about the damage this has done and this is one more of those bush/cheney programs that this administration has taken to ridiculous lengths. >> the real world implications is massive. the damage has been done that's not just political but mic economically. the idea that the president doesn't know about these things over and over again -- i imagine people think it's a better explanation than saying he did know. that's hard for me to see how it's a positive. if that is true that's alarming. given that they are arguing this wholesale review we have not heard a revamp of this from the president. he made his speech, he made his press conference. he needs to go back and explain exactly what's happening. these revelations keep coming and more will continue. >> one more story before we go to break. over the weekend the affordable care act main website went into a bit of an overhaul. >> that's good. i sho
to say in 2002 this is george w. bush white house, someone would say it is okay to spy on the chancellor of germany, the nsa would not have done that without such authorization? >> no. i don't want to talk about anything specifically, fareed. i'm just not able to do that. i would say political guidance was very often by exception. there was a broad understanding that of the things you were being tasked to do, you would be led to certain kinds of activities. i listened to the minister and he gave a very powerful argument as to why activities like this could lead to damaged relationships. let me give you a sense of my world. what we really have here is worlds colliding. when president obama won the election, i mean, he was addicted to his blackberry. he wanted to keep his blackberry. boy, we were really nervous about that and suggested he not do that and he frankly told us we're going to have to pry it out of his hands. he voluntarily limited his use and nsa put a few more security enhancements in it. fareed, let me give you the backdrop to that little vinnette. we were telling the most po
this president in his term, he should be -- he's commander in chief, he should stand with nsa. >> george w. bush took like the peter king approach, the world was black and white. if it was furthering our aim of capturing bad guys, that was the end of the story. this president because he is conflicted in some ways he's not getting praise or doing the right thing by either side's opinion. he seems publicly sort of like he's not even sure where he should be did. >> i don't think he knows where he is. he didn't even know this was going on. >> come on, he knew. we talk honestly in public about what we do with intelligence, of course he knew. >> i don't think that makes it better for him not to have known. i'm not sure they would put that out there if it's not true. >> there's a factual question, if he knew and he and his team are continuing to misrepresent that, that's deeply problematic. they have the right and ability to not get into it. on the other hand, if you take the current statements at face value, they are also very bad for a different reason, the nsa is not keeping potus on the loop on the

the existence of george w. bush, he said. there is, without it seem to me, an obama derangement syndrome as well. do you think that one is any more acute than the other? have you been to be able diagnose more cases the other? >> well, to start, it was largely tongue-in-cheek giving it a serious diagnosis. as you know, when you try ironing in general, the iron is missed. i actually had a phrase. it came from howard dean and i write about it in the column. howard dean had been on a show and said that he was a little bit unsure as to whether bush had known about 9/11 in advance which is weird. and dean is a serious guy. so i had a phrase in there that said that dean was a little bit troubling to epidemiologists because dean was the first example of such a syndrome happening in the very state. now, because he's -- from vermont. that was obviously a clue that this was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. but on the serious issue, which is that there were people who were so opposed to anything that bush had done, yes, it applies to obama. yes, it applied to reagan. and i think it applied -- generally speaking
is not immediately visible. >> rose: right. >> and they are not yearning for a degree of george w. bush again but they would like some element of this is where we want to go and this is the way we can do it. >> i think you are right. i think it is concern about american intro version, american apathy, american lack of engagement is a bigger concern than not listen to us. >> you want people to listen to you, and there is always leader will whine about that, but the bigger and broader concern is that the u.s., which the world relies on the u.s., everybody relies on the u.s., the u.s. is unwilling both in national security or geopolitical arena and in the economic arena, is not a, as focused as it might be on things of the rest of the world. >> rose: what is the most surprising thing you heard at this conference when you had all of these smart people talk something. >> one is, i did two pans focused a lot on europe, priefg optimism, people very up beat about europe, i was very surprised about that. the second was a lecture from alan greenspan and he argued that the reason firms are not investing

different than in terms of president george w. bush. >> the obama administration spied on at least 35 foreign governments according to "the wall street journal". they did not deny the spying. the white house said all spying tactics are under review. some have already been canceled like surveillance of german chancellor angela merkel's cellphone. it has infuriated he and severely damaged u.s. relations. a prominent newspaper said obama had known of the spying since 2010. he was informed personally that year. the administration denied that confrontation took place. the mess in europe is now spilling into some corners of congress. >> they don't believe ever listening to the head of state of an ally is appropriate. i would hope the president is as upset as all of us are in congress. >> reporter: some lawmakers say europe needs to grow up. >> if the french citizens knew exactly what that was about they would be applauding and popping champagne corks. it's a good thing. >> reporter: the white house promised merkel the surveillance canada. others want the same rules. >> senior correspondent
and come back. karl rove, former senior advisor, deputy chief of staff to president george w. bush, fox news contributor. good morning to you. you dealt with crisis at the white house for eight years. how does kathleen sebelius either defend her or this program this week? >> well, going to be awfully hard. i think her best defense is to try to keep the focus on we're trying going to try to get this problem solved. look, this morning "the wall street journal" had a piece, there were three groups of people, the people at office of consumer information and insurance oversight, a new office at h-hs planning the website. people at center for medicaid and medicare services, cms, 40 miles away from baltimore, they were planning the website. then we had white house officials who were delaying important officials that had implementation of rules that had real consequences for how you design the website what it can do. we had no one in charge. no one single person was in charge of this. everybody has to agree to the same deadlines and we're going to execute. at the end of the day somebody has to
intelligence committee. do you think the former president george w. bush didn't know? >> i don't know. but i think he might have. i had access, sat in with him on obviously classified briefings, the daily presidential briefing, and i don't want to give anything away that i shouldn't, but i'm not, you know, there were obvious moments when there was information that could only have come from an intercept. we would be let's say preparing for a meeting with a foreign leader, and they would say we have reason to believe the foreign leader has on his mind, it intends to raise at this meeting the following points or following objections to u.s. policy. that could be an intercepted leader or intercept of one of his advisors but there is clearly penetration of a foreign government's internal communications. i don't know. maybe they never revealed that fact in their briefings of president obama but it would be hard, if they had that information and didn't, it's a little hard to understand. >> it's hard to believe that they wouldn't tell the president of the united states, especially as he goes into a
